Path Finder initial probs: no font change for file-listing area + no keyboard-based widget switch

Just installed Path Finder. Initial probs: 1) no font change for file-listing area (despite changing numerous times the "List Modules" appearance/font preferences; Sidebar font changes -do- work) and 2) haven't yet found a way to keyboard-traverse "widgets" (different panes, frames, parts of the finder winder) like I can in Windows. eg, tab will move from list module focus to sidebar, etc. Maybe there's a diff key besides tab? How to learn these things (a quick peruse of Help didn't find anything)?

#2 was my main reason for trying Path Finder, fyi. Also, fonts are terribly tiny, hard to deal with, really need to get #1 to work.

Thanks for any help.

    To change the font in the file listing go to View > Show View Options.
    The List Modules settings are for WIndow > Modules which show a file listing (eg. Recent Documents, Shelf).

    The Tab key behaves as in Finder, jumps between items. On some apps it jumps between window controls, in other it jumps between a Sidebar and a content bar.
    I guess this behavior is up to the developer.
